Humpback Whale on Sea Isle City Beach; Woman Arrested for Obstruction; Speed Cameras on Boulevard
  by: iradioal - Philadelphia, PA

A dead humpback whale washed up on shore in Sea Isle City, New Jersey, on Friday afternoon. It happened near 20th Street. Officials from the Marine Mammal Stranding Center in Brigantine said the 33-foot, approximately 20-ton male juvenile was likely dead 4-5 days and looked emaciated. There were no apparent injuries or immediate cause of death determined. Samples were taken for a necropsy. The whale will remain on the beach overnight and be moved on Saturday morning where it will be buried near the dunes.

A 35-year-old woman has been arrested for hindering the investigation in the shooting death of an 8-year-old girl killed last month in Camden. 35-year-old Shakia Land of the 1800 block of Kossuth Street was charged with one count of fourth-degree hindering an investigation. Land apparently gave detectives a false alibi for a person of interest in the case. 8-year-old Gabrielle Hill-Carter was shot in the head outside of her Camden home on August 24th by a stray bullet. She died two days later. There is a $76,000 reward for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of those responsible. Anyone with information to call Camden County Prosecutor’s Office Detective Sherman Hopkins at (856) 225-8623 or Camden County Police Department Detective Michael Ross at (856) 757-7420.

State lawmakers heard public testimony today at City Hall on legislation that would approve the use of speed cameras along parts of Roosevelt Boulevard in Northeast Philadelphia. The proposed bill would introduce a 5-year pilot program for the cameras. Anyone caught going 11 miles over the 45 miles per hour speed limit will get an automatic $150 fine in the mail. Members of the Pennsylvania Transportation committee listened to testimony from several members of the public who have lost loved ones to accidents along the 12 lane roadway. The Boulevard rountinely ranks not only one of the most dangerous roads in the city or state but in the entire country. It is also notorious for two Top 10 most dangerous insections at Grant Ave. and at Red Lion Road. Lawmakers have 10 days left in this legislative session to pass the bill, or else it will have to be reintroduced next year.

Clear skies, temperatures in the low 70s/upper 60s this evening in Center City
